Catching up on the Lady Cards


SUNDAY @ CARDINAL COUPLE:
.
Catching up on the Lady Cards
.
We hope your Christmas Day went well for you and that Santa was accurate in getting the things under the tree you specificed. While the family blissfully sleeps after a day of excess and fellowship, it's time to catch up on the Lady Cards 2010-11 women's basketball season. Pictured here, Becky Burke and Shoni Schimmel respond to the notion that UK could actually beat them in basketball.
.
Louisville is 9-5 on the season and currently 2-2 in their last four games. A win over BIG EAST Foe Cincinnati, followed by losses to Marist and Houston before defeating #21 Nebraska in the Duel in the Desert Classic in Las Vegas. The Cards are off until Tuesday, Dec. 28th...when they'll face Tennessee-Martin in the KFC-YUM Center. This tune up for BIG EAST play is the first of three straight in the YUM. Louisville faces St. John on Tuesday, January 4th. and Pittsburgh Sunday, Dec 9th. after the UT-Martin game.
.
Freshman Shoni Schimmel leads the Cards in scoring with 16.3 ppg. The other double figure scorer for Jeff Walz's team is junior Monique Reid at 15.8 per contest. Rounding out the top five Cardinal point producers are Becky Burke (8.4 ppg), Tia Gibbs (8.3 ppg) and Sherrone Vails (8.1 ppg). Thirteen Cards have hit the court this year and are scoring 77.8 a contest. They are allowing 57.6 a game. Schimmel has attempted the most shots for Louisville (87-185), followed by Reid (87-152), Tia Gibbs (43-101) and Sherrone Vails (45-95). Schimmel has the most three points attempts for UofL (38-94), followed by Burke (26-64), Gibbs (19-48) and Antonita Slaughter (14-36).
.
Keisha Hines leads Louisville in rebounding with 90. The other top five are Reid with 76, Gibbs at 60, Schimmel with 47 and Vails grabbing 46. Schimmel is the assist leader with 72 and it drops off to 27 for Reid in second. Schimmel also leads in turnovers with 54. HInes at 40 is second here. Gibbs has 36 steals to lead Louisville...Schimmel and Hines have 28. Vails has 3o blocked shots in 14 games, Hines 23.
.
It's a game before the midway point of the season...but we'll hand out a few CARDINAL COUPLE awards anyway.
.
-Most Valuable Player at the halfway point is Schimmel. The freshman has been everything advertised before hitting the campus and the offense seems to go through either her or Reid the majority of the time.
.
-100% + Hustle Award goes to Tia Gibbs. The transfer sophomore never turns in a sub-standard effort and is probably the best defender in the back court.
.
Super Sub. Going with Reid as long as she continues coming off the bench. Another option here could be Burke, who delights by coming off the bench and drilling threes.
